"Be polite, be professional and have a plan to kill everyone you meet."

That's apparently the motto for soldiers in Ramadi, a town still in heavy war zone. No wonder that according to this report,

In three years here the Marine Corps and the Army have tried nearly everything to bring this provincial capital of 400,000 under control. Nothing has worked.

Is this really the way to win the hearts and minds of the Iraqis? Can the situation be changed from the direction it is heading?
